We’re in that standard mid-winter pattern now: snow, groom, snow some more, groom some more. No rain, no ice, no warming temps, no melting, just day-in and day-out of more snow. The pine boughs have stayed coated in snow, so every day we are in a living Christmas card picture.
The following measurements from the Baumann family were taken yesterday, but of course it snowed again last night, as much as 6 inches in some spots. The groomers are all out on the trails again today and it seems to be taking awhile this time — lots of fresh snow!

Comments: Ski trails are in excellent shape! Our trail base is now averaging between 10” and 12.5” thick; nice and solid too. We added nearly 4 inches of snow over the past weekend and more is forecasted for today. Winter is in full swing on the Gunflint!
